Seine River Cruises

Cruising the River Seine

Cruise the waterways of the Seine and experience the beauty, history and gastronomy of France.

Contributing to the allure of Paris and having served as a source of inspiration for eminent artists from Monet to Matisse, the Seine is unquestionably one of France’s natural treasures.

Join us on one of our Seine river cruises as we set sail from the exquisite capital on board a luxurious Scenic Space-Ship to the beaches of Normandy, passing magnificent museums, charming towns, imposing châteaux and graceful cathedrals along the way.

Paris is only one of the marvels that you will encounter on the banks of the Seine. With stops in Conflans, Vernon, Les Andelys, Rouen, Caudebec-en-Caux and Honfleur, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the rich culture of northern France and indulge in the captivating sights and culinary specialities.


Be introduced to the wonders of Europe on one of our Seine river cruises embarking in glorious Paris. A city referred to as both the ‘City of Light’ and ‘The City of Love.’ As you sail slowly past the riverbanks, you will witness many of the city’s icons, including the majestic Eiffel Tower, the imposing Arc de Triomphe and The University of Sorbonne.

Further west is the medieval town of Conflans, where you will enter an inviting riverside port and walk past quaint churches and charming houses. You will also have the opportunity to discover the nearby town of Auvers-Sur-Oise, once home to Vincent Van Gogh.

Continue towards the coast on our Seine river cruise, and enjoy the scenery on your way to Vernon, Les Andelys and Rouen. Sights to see along this stretch of the river include Claude Monet’s country house and gardens in Giverny, the ruins of Château Gaillard in Les Andelys and Joan of Arc sites in Rouen. You will also be invited to indulge in some of France’s finest fare, including cider tasting near Les Andelys and an assortment of desserts from a local patissier in Rouen.

The towns of Caudebec-en-Caux and Honfleur are the final highlights of the Seine, before it reaches the English Channel. On this segment of our Seine river cruise, you can look forward to discovering the hilltop village of Bolbec with its intriguing Textile Museum and Honfleur’s picturesque fishing port. Honfleur also offers convenient access to the D-Day landing beaches of Normandy, allowing you to explore the setting of one of history’s most significant events.

The Seine is truly a spectacular destination to discover on your river cruise through France.
